One of the many reasons for Storyvault to exist, is that it can provide a historic reference point enabling us to make comparisons with events taking place today.   Plenty of people can speculate on "what it was like when...." but there's nothing quite like the first hand testimony of someone who was there.  So all the recent discussion about the Trump inauguration and the comparisons with Obama's, reminded me that we have a very vivid account of the Obama inauguration from someone who went to a lot of trouble to be there.  Put Alex Wheatle into the search engine - then you can see his account of real-life history as it happened - then go on to watch his other great stories from an eventful life.
